ATRC – People + Technology

ATRC Hawaii


Aloha ATRC Community,

On behalf of the Board of Directors at Assistive Technology Resource Center (ATRC), it is with a blend of deep appreciation and bright anticipation that we announce a significant transition within our leadership team. As we navigate through the evolving landscape of assistive technology and its pivotal role in empowering lives, we recognize the importance of stewardship and vision in leading ATRC toward a future filled with potential and promise.

We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to Barbara Fischlowitz-Leong, our founding Executive Director, who will be stepping down from her role. Barbara’s vision, passion, and unwavering commitment have been the cornerstone of ATRC since its inception. Under her guidance, ATRC has flourished, extending its reach and impact across communities in need of assistive technology solutions. Barbara’s dedication to fostering an environment of innovation and compassion has not only shaped the organization’s culture but has also touched the lives of countless individuals and families. Her legacy will continue to inspire us, and we wish her all the best in her future endeavors.

As we bid farewell to one chapter, we are thrilled to usher in a new era of leadership under the capable hands of Jodi Asato who will assume the role of Executive Director beginning April 1, 2024. Jodi, a familiar face within our ATRC family, brings a wealth of experience and a deep understanding of our mission and values. Having worked alongside Barbara and the rest of our team, Jodi is well-versed in the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. Her commitment to our cause, coupled with her innovative approach and strategic vision, makes her the ideal candidate to steer ATRC into its next phase of growth and expansion. We are confident that under Jodi’s leadership, ATRC will continue to break new ground, reaching more individuals in need of our services and enhancing the quality of life for many.

As we embark on this exciting transition, we are reminded of the collective passion and dedication that binds us as a community. Our love for ATRC and our unwavering belief in its mission fuel our hopes and aspirations for what we can achieve together. With Jodi at the helm, supported by our talented team and the invaluable support of our government funding partners, grant partners, private donors, and volunteers, we look forward to a future where assistive technology becomes increasingly accessible and impactful.

We invite you to join us in expressing our deepest appreciation to Barbara for her indelible contributions and in welcoming Jodi with open arms as she takes on her new role as ATRC Executive Director. Together, we will continue to advance the mission of ATRC, making a meaningful difference in the lives of those we serve.

Mahalo for your ongoing support and commitment to ATRC. Here’s to a future filled with innovation, growth, and continued success.
